Provincial Nominee Programs

Apply for a provincial nominee programs.

Only the government of Canada can give permanent resident visas. Provinces and territories can also help. They do this by nominating people for their program. The provinces and territories nominate people based on the needs in that area, like jobs or the economy.

Once the provinces have submitted their nomination, if approved by both provincial and federal immigration officials, it can be used to support a person's application for permanent residence. This is done through express entry under the Federal Skilled Workers category.

Provincial Nomination Programs

This method of immigration sounds very straightforward, but some bureaucratic issues have arisen in recent years regarding how it actually works. In some cases, a province will send an immigration nomination to the federal government only to be rejected. Some immigrants find themselves in this situation for a variety of reasons. This is why the knowledge of a Canadian immigration lawyer is critical.
